Souvenirs are a nice memento to bring back after a trip. There are plenty of souvenirs to choose from: shot glasses, books or even chocolates. Well, now you can add moose poop to the list!
One man decided to pack moose poop in his carry-on for a very interesting reason. His carry-on was flagged by equipment at Juneau International Airport as “large organic mass” and had to be searched because it’s a sign of explosive material. Luckily, he got to take his bag of moose poop on the plane.
“The TSA officers opened the bag, they saw the moose poop inside,” Lisa Farbstein, a spokesperson for TSA told KTOO. “And the passenger told the TSA officers that he collects this and likes to present it, ‘For politicians and their bleep policies.’”
According to Farbstein, TSA doesn’t have any policies in place on nuggets of poo. But just to ensure you’ll be able to take your memento with you, check with the airline because some carriers may have restrictions on smelly items.
Yes, you can bring moose poop to a checkpoint! And someone did last week at Juneau Int’l Airport. @TSA has no policy preventing people
from traveling with animal poop, but check with your airline on its policies
because having to leave souvenir poop behind would be crappy. pic.twitter.com/6aW5ALpSE4

Twitter user @AK_OK posted an act of what we can expect from one hauling moose poop. Could this possibly be the same passenger gifting a politician with this baggy of moose nuggets? Maybe, it’s the work of a like-minded individual.
